1940s Makeup Tutorial

Women in the ’40s (sometimes called dames and broads) donned a rather simple, yet ultra glamorous look that we can’t help but want to copy. Bold lips, darkened eyebrows and a matte foundation are the key ingredients to recreating this vintage look. Be sure to apply multiple layers of mascara, intensify your eyes with bold liner and remember that the brows should be penciled in for extra definition. Complete the look with a cherry red lip.
